Forms workflow steps provide detailed logs to debug workflow-related issues conveniently. Enable debug logging for AEM Forms workflows to view the logs.
By default, all logging information is available in the error.log file at the /crx-repository/logs/ directory.
The debug logs for forms workflows include:
Entry of each workflow step. For example:
[DEBUG] "Executing Invoke DDX Process step"
Exit of each workflow step. For example:
[DEBUG] "Successfully finished Invoke DDX Process step"
Service invocation messages. For example:
[DEBUG] Invoking Adobe Sign Service for creating agreement
Service exit messages. For example:
[DEBUG] Agreement created successfully with agreement id <agreement id>
Variables read from the metadata map. For example:
[DEBUG] Successfully retrieved variable <variable name> from workflow meta data map
Variables written in JCR repository. For example:
[DEBUG] Successfully written variable <variable name> into meta data node at <JCR path where meta data is being written>
Exception messages with complete stack trace. For example:
[DEBUG] Exception in Adobe Sign Service <complete stack trace>
Dynamic step metadata parameters. For example:
[DEBUG] Document of Record to be generated for adaptive form <path of adaptive form> [DEBUG] Locale to be used for Document of Record is <locale>
The following example illustrates the logs for the Sign Document step:
[DEBUG] Executing sign document step. [DEBUG] Using adobe sign configuration: <path of adobe sign configuration> [DEBUG] Invoking Adobe Sign Service for creating agreement [DEBUG] Agreement created successfully with agreement id <agreement id> [DEBUG] Exception in Adobe Sign Service <complete stack trace> [ERROR] Exception in Adobe Sign Service [DEBUG] Successfully finished sign document step
Use the logs to evaluate that:
If there is an exception, you can view the complete stack trace to evaluate the cause of the error.
